Association of the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists Worldwide (AMFPA) is a worldwide organization with about 500 month and foot painting artists in over 60 countries. In 1956, 17 mouth and foot painting artists throughout Europe got together to make their mutual ideas come true – an organization that would stand by the handicapped artist and get them the recognition they deserved as artist as well as financial independence.

In order to become members of the association, the handicapped painting artists will have to meet the standards set by the association and will be accessed by the jury. As members, they give the association the rights to publish their art pieces on calendars, cards and art prints. In addition their original art pieces will also be sold at exhibitions held all over the world. In return, those members will receive a regular income and might even be granted a scholarship. Hence being financially independent allows them to concentrate on their artistic developments. Furthermore, they receive recognition and gain self-fulfillment, in which they might be unable to abtain on their own.

The purpose of the organization are to:

  • Make contact with all people who either artists who have lost the use of their hands through accident or illness, and who paints with brush held in the month or the toes; or people who, having been born or become disabled, wish to learn to paint and support themselves through the sale of their works.
  • Give disabled people who are interested in becoming students every moral and financial assistance to do so and to give students financial, practical and creative support to become fully developed artists and members of the Association.
  • Take care of these artist’s and student’s interest by helping them to sell their work, primarily in the form of reproduction as greeting cards, calendars and other artworks.
  • Co-operate in the interest of the self-helping disabled, worldwide.
  • Help disabled artists to attain self-respect, creative fulfillment and financial security.

Singapore is one of the 60 countries in which AMFPA has a branch office. There are also a few local handicapped painting artist who are members of the association.
